When it was first published, How to Make Money in Stocks hit the investing world like a jolt, providing readers with the first in-depth explanation of William J. O'Neil's innovative CAN SLIM investing method. Today, at a time when investors around the world are looking for what really works in the stock market, it is the right point in time for a fourth and fully revised edition of the investment classic.

This new edition covers the 2008, 2009, upward and downward movements in the economy, and reinforces how O'Neil's rules for selling protects every investor that follows them, even in times of severe market volatility. "We've heard from readers around the world who followed the sell rules in How to Make Money in Stocks that they avoided big losses by getting out of the market at the first signs of the downturn," said O'Neil.

How to Make Money in Stocks 4e: A Winning System in Good Times or Bad is the ultimate resource on O'Neil's CAN SLIM Investing System, the primary growth strategy according to a study conducted by the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) from 1998 to 2008. In the study, covering over 50 leading strategies, AAII found the CAN SLIM system had a gain versus a decline for the S&P 500. The CAN SLIM system embodies the seven common traits that all great stocks historically exhibited prior to making their biggest price shifts. As well, the strategy teaches investors how to identify winning stocks by looking for ones that portray these traits.

How to Make Money in Stocks 4e also features:

- A step-by-step checklist for finding the best stocks

- Rules that keep losses small and manageable

- Instructions on how to time the market using historical facts rather than future predictions

- A guide on how to pick the best mutual funds and ETFs to maximize long- term gains

- 21 common mistakes most investors make, and how to avoid them

- 100 charts of winning stocks from 1880 to 2008 that reveal common patterns

O'Neil says, "After the market disaster of 2000 and 2008, most investors now realize they need to take a more active, informed role in their investing decisions. This new edition gives financiers and professionals a time-tested plan that anyone can use to recover from past losses and take charge of their financial future."


William J. O'Neil made his first investment of $300 in Procter & Gamble while serving in the Air Force. Shortly after, he joined Hayden Stone as a stockbroker, and began his studies in determining the greatest stock market winners and the traits they shared. O'Neil was the first to computerize stock information in the 60's, which helped uncover the CAN SLIM traits. His vision of computer tracking netted one of the most successful strategies of all time, and with the launch of Investor's Business Daily in 1984, he opened the market to everyday investors.
